During the first half of the autumn term, we learnt about States of Matter.


We learnt how molecules are packed differently in solids, liquids and gases and showed this in a class drama piece. We examined how warm and cold different items were and were fortunate that Anglia Water gave us an online lecture on the water cycle. We followed this up by creating a comic strip about a water drop called Walther, and examined his journey through the water cycle. Our artistic muscles really enjoyed creating a scientifically labelled diagram of a volcano and our main investigation involved seeing whether combining bicarbonate of soda and vinegar would froth out of all the containers that we experimented with.


For the second half of the autumn term we studied Sound. We labelled a diagram of a human ear and invented a fair test to see whether increasing the size of our pinnae enabled us to hear better - it did!


In the Spring term we studied Living Things and their Habitats, exploring the intricate connections between organisms and their environments. We learnt about the diverse ecosystems that exist on our planet, from lush rainforests to barren deserts, and discovered how different organisms have adapted to survive in these varied conditions. We particularly focused on the bee species and asked ourselves how long we would survive if there were no bees on the planet....  Alongside this exploration, year 3 were introduced to the concept of climate change, understanding how human activities are impacting the delicate balance of Earth's ecosystems. Through engaging activities and discussions, the children began to grasp the importance of preserving biodiversity and taking action to mitigate the effects of climate change, ensuring a sustainable future for all living things.


Teeth are special parts of our bodies that help us eat, talk, and smile! This summer term will see us examining and comparing different sets of teeth - including our own... After this, we will learn about the amazing force, electricity, that powers so many things in our world. We will discover how electricity flows through wires to make our lights shine bright, our toys move, and our TVs play our favourite shows. We will also learn about the importance of being safe around electricity. Through fun experiments and activities, we will explore how electricity works and build simple circuits to make bulbs light up and buzzers buzz!
